Madaya, Syria, where children resort to suicide

The town of Madaya in Syria has been under siege for more than a year.

Cut off from regular supplies of food, medical supplies and electricity, many of its residents are suffering from severe malnutrition.

Our correspondent James Longman has been speaking to 15-year-old Omar, who is trapped in the town.
